Question about Sony Televison & Video
The cable on this TV won't work, just shows 'fuzzies' all over, but when you put it on Video 1 for the DVD player, it works just fine and has the clearest picture ever! What do I need to do to make the cable work? (And yes, I have gone through the setup menu and set the cable to 'ON'). PLEASE HELP!
The tuners in many Sony sets often develop bad solder connections that can cause this kind of tuning trouble. The tuner can be replaced to fix the problem, and it's also often possible to repair it. To repair the tuner, it needs to be removed from the board in the set, the cover removed, and all the connections from the tuner circuit board to the metal shield can need to be resoldered. The metal can is used as the ground connection for many places on the tuner, and the connections develop cracks and become intermittent or fail completely. When you use the video input, you bypass the tuner so you have the nice clear picture.
This repair should be handled by a technician who's experienced with soldering on small circuit boards. Improperly done, this repair can do more damage to the small, closely-spaced circuit board traces. Many technicians would rather simply replace the tuner than do the repair. Depending on the price of the part and how labor is charged, it may cost the same either way.
